Spicy aubergine chips with couscous

We tried out a delicious new recipe yesterday which I found in the latest international edition of Flow Magazine (issue 9). It is taken from Rachel Khoo’s book, My Little French Kitchen, and there are a few more recipes from the book in the magazine too (all of which look yummy!). The great thing about this recipe is that you can make it to serve 4 as a starter or 2 as a main, so it would be great for all occasions. The recipe says that it takes 30 minutes to prepare and 30 minutes to cook, but it only took us 45 from start to finish so we’ll definitely be having this on a weeknight some time soon! It’s also wonderfully light and fresh, and is a great vegetarian meal. Read More

I think next time I’d put a whole chilli in for 2 people, but that’s just personal preference! I used linguine here, which was slightly on the done side because we were trying to rescue a butterfly…
